Mangroove played at my wedding last weekend. It was amaxing. Felt as though I had known Manny my whole life. The band was excellent. My guests really enjoyed the entertainment. These guys were extremely professional. They played Kenny g. For my bridal entrance. It was great and they finished off the night playing the reception.

Everyone involved in our event enjoyed Manny as a performer AND as a person! Manny was flexible, cheerful and responsive to the guests in spite of extreme heat. Everyone was pleased and impressed with musical selections. If the evaluation had room for ratings ABOVE 5, we would surely give them. I highly recommend Mangroove without hesitation. They will make any event better!
